"Spencer House is one of the great architectural landmarks of London. Built in the eighteenth century by John, 1st Earl Spencer, an ancestor of the Princess of Wales, it was immediately recognized as a building of major importance and is today the most complete surviving example of its kind, the great London mansions of the nobility and gentry having largely been demolished. . In this first in-depth study, Joseph Friedman highlights the unique importance of the building and argues that the great London mansion was no less significant than the country house in shaping the architectural, social and political history of England. He documents the history of Spencer House from its construction to the present day, and examines the revolutionary work of its architects.
